For as long as I can remember I have had a love for animals. I grew up in Hamilton near Gage Park and would bring home any animal I thought needed care. My parents were very tolerant allowing me to have many pets including dogs, cats, rabbits, mice, birds, turtles, fish, snakes and salamanders. I even had a pet cockroach. Currently I have 2 mice named Elsa and Anna, a Beta fish named Sushi and a cat named Gilligan.
My posts secondary education began at the University of McMaster were I received my Honours Bachelor of Science Degree in Genetics in 1991. I spent the next year exploring Hawaii, Tahiti, New Zealand and Australia. When I returned from my travels, I was accepted into the Ontario Veterinary College where I graduated in 1998. I have been practicing in Hamilton ever since.. My passion is surgery but I appreciate all aspects of Veterinary Medicine. I enjoy the diversification a career in Veterinary Medicine provides.
I currently live in Dundas with my wife who is also in the Veterinary Profession and my daughter who I’m sure will be a Veterinarian when she grows up, as she too wants to bring home any animal in need of care.
I am fortunate to have been working at Beattie Pet Hospital since July of 2013 where I can enjoy a wonderful balance between work and family life.
